Playing With Fire? Torched to Be Published July 26; Proofs for Summer Star*Line Received

Billed as “The debut anthology from Nocturnal Press,” TORCHED is, um, set for a July 26 release date, according to Editor Eden Royce.  But let her explain:  “Our relationship with fire is an intimate one.  From the intrigue of the warmth to the draw of the light, it spans history — yet who tamed the beast was never recorded.  From the Norse funeral to the Pagan celebrations, fire hTorched-200x300as burned its way through our lives, a passing mark on some, an indelible scar on others.  Within this tome lie 18 authors from across the globe, each with their own burning tale to tell. . .


My flambeau in this fire pit is the story “City on Fire” (see May 23).  Originally published in SHADOWS OF SATURN for April-May 2005, this is one in my series of “Tombs” stories set on a far-future, dying — and in this case apparently inflammable — Earth.

Then in a bit of fast work, proof sheets for the Summer edition of STAR*LINE arrived today with my shortie poem, “Sign Me Up As Well, Quickly,” ensconced on page 12.  This, we may remember from June 27th’s posting, below, is a three-line ode to insurance . . . and blood.  More on STAR*LINE and the Science Fiction Poetry Association can be found by pressing here.
